Falling

I will remember
the leaping seas,
the sloping smile
of the shore.

As emerging naked,
the moon lit
your lines and curves,
moved, the stone
of my heart
cracked

I felt a fear
that my pages
were to be rewritten,
I grasped my breast,
and the wind charged
as the sky fell

I will forever remember
the crack and fall,
until my eternal kiss

You, my dear, are often able to challenge my prejudices (though I may never be able to quite forgive you for voting for the Mad Monk, it is not necessary, you will suffer as everyone apart from the mega rich will).

Yes you have brought your Jayne Chloe magic to this piece, I was touched.

What more can I say? No suggestions. I hope my reading does it some justice,

You have a beautifully smooth reading voice that I could listen to all day and night I have been listening to your readings and there are times you give me goose bumps, I had to smile if I have challenged your prejudices that's a good thing big...and its the best compliment

oh and by the way I didn't vote for the mad monk I didn't vote for anyone that day, long story...

Your reading was beautiful thank you for that I appreciate it very much

Jane.
Many favorite lines, but especially liked

"As emerging naked,
the moon lit
your lines and curves,
moved, the stone
of my heart
cracked"

though I'd rearrange as:

As emerging naked,
the moon lit
your lines and curves(,)
moved,
the stone of my heart
cracked

and I thought you need either to punctuate all or leave it all.
just a thought dear.
Thanks for sharing

I am very happy you liked this one its close to being finished I understand your suggestion but if I take away the comma at the end of that line it will totally change the meaning that I intended when I wrote it, I do appreciate any and all suggestions so please don't hesitate to offer anything you think may improve my work

Thanks for reading its always a pleasure to hear your thoughts

love JC x

Exquisite write dear friend with very good word usage to emote. All are good, so difficult to choose one over the other as favorite. I am sure you will eidt for punctuation as suggested by Rula, which is a weak area for me :)

much love n hugs....

raj (sublime_ocean)

Big smile thanks for that I appreciate it I am very happy you liked it, In this case the punctuation suggestion that Rula gave will change my intended meaning so I wont be using it but I will be taking a look at the poem as a whole in a few days, its still not totally finished the punctuation is probably the last thing I have left to work on with this one

thanks for the read and your thoughts I really do appreciate it

much love and hugs JC xxx

seriously, if you can charm Rula, Raj and Jess, what more can be said about me, Jayne... I'm just a novice compared to them..and you say you are "nothing special"? (rolling my eyes heavenward and shaking my head)

love and hugs

I couldn't charm the birds from the trees I am charmless, Your going to give me a big head if you keep complimenting me then Jess will have to burst my bubble and bring me back to earth LOL

Very Happy you liked it my friend thank you for the support :)

If other people said to you what you say to yourself you would be quite right to smack them in the head.

You know you are a talented poet and self-deprecation at best undermines yourself, at worst can be seen as fishing for compliments..

Cease and desist at once or I will personally deliver the smack in the head.

cheers,
Jess

I have to beg to differ on this one, I have my way with words, yes, it is nothing special...in my eyes, I truly believe that, I read so many other talented poets and hope one day I can write something truly epically great. There is so much I don't know and I am trying to remedy that.

I know you don't lie, but I don't know what to say...maybe just thank you and shut up.
